SRK Arena III - Ratchet: Deadlocked/Gladiator [Sign-Up Thread]


Welcome to the sign-up thread of the third Arena game of Shoryuken! Now, there are going to be a couple of changes in this game compared to regular games, so I’ll address them first.

ALL BANS ARE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED FOR THE DURATION OF THE GAME - This includes permanent bans, temporary bans, Mafia bans and everything in between.

PM’S ARE ALLOWED IN THIS GAME - This is going to be a new mechanic implemented to see how the game plays out differently. PM’s are allowed between any amount of Players in ‘SRK Arena III’, and nobody outside of the game is to be added into a PM. If you do make a PM, please make sure to add @ArenaGM to the conversation. All actions will still be submitted to @AlphaCommando.

THERE IS NO LIMIT TO PLAYERS IN THIS GAME - Unlike the past two previous Arena games, the player amount will not be limited to 12 players. Everybody that signs up will be added to the game, unless specifically requested to be a Sponsor.

STEALTH WILL BE REPLACED WITH EVADE - Instead of Stealth giving you immunity on the second turn to take a free action, Evade gives you immunity during that turn, leaving you unable to Evade or Defend during the next turn.

DEAD PLAYERS WILL NOT BE ADDED TO THE SPONSOR’S SUITE - If a player dies, they will NOT be allowed to post in the thread or in PM’s, but will also not be added to the Sponsor’s Suite until the end of the game upon request.

Players may take 1 action per turn. They PM that action to the game master, who will update the game every 24 hours based on those actions.

Player Actions:

  1. Attack. You may attack a character, dealing your attack damage to them.

  2. Defend. You defend yourself, doubling your defense value for this turn. Or target another player, and add your defense value to theirs for this turn.

  3. Scavenge. You attempt to grab some equipment from the equipment list. If multiple people attempt to grab the same item, only 1 will receive it (chosen randomly)

  4. Evade. You dodge all incoming attacks. Cannot use Evade or Defend after Evading.

All actions are resolved at the same time. If a player takes combined damage more than their defense value on a single turn, they are killed and removed from the game.

The last player left alive (if any) wins the game.

All players will be assigned an ability. This secret special ability will not be revealed until their death, but can have an effect on the game. Those in the Sponsors Lounge will be able to see everybodies abilities.

Arena Hazards:
The arena will be themed, and have hazards in them. These hazards and their order will be selected before the game starts, but kept secret. At the end of a phase, if the arena hazards have any effect on the game, it will be shared with the players. This hazard will affect the next phase.

Before the game starts, people can sign up to be sponsors. They will be given 1 credit to spend. They may spend these credits to help players currently in the game. Credits unspent will carry over to future games.

The list of available items/bonuses that can be bought with credits will vary from game to game, and will be posted in the LL but kept secret from the players.

Scavenge-able Equipment
Equipment may be scavenged during a players turn, but each item can only be owned by 1 player at a time. If multiple players attempt to scavenge the same piece of equipment on the same turn, one will be chosen (at random) to receive the item, and the other players end up with nothing.

When a player dies, his items become scavenge-able again.

The actual equipment list of items that will be available is kept secret until the game starts, as it varies from arena to arena and is up to the game master. Here is a sample list of items, so that you can have an idea of what to expect to see.

Equipment List:

Short Sword (hand), +2 attack
Axe (hand), +4 attack (-1 armor value to each piece of armor you wear)
Mace (hand), +2 attack (If the enemy doesn’t die when you attack, destroy 1 random piece of their armor)
Spear (hand), +2 attack (deals 2 damage to attackers while you are defending)
Katana (2 handed), +5 attack
Bow (2 handed), +3 attack (Ranged: you avoid damage while attacking, even if their item permits them to deal damage)


Shield (off-hand), +2 Defense
Tower Shield (Hand), +4 defense
Spiked Shield (off-hand) +1 attack, +2 defense (deals 1 damage to attackers while you are defending)
Body Armor (Armor), +3 defense (+2 extra vs ranged weapons)

Deadly Poison - Your swords, daggers, and axes have +1 attack
Stoneskin amulet - you have +1 armor

Carried Equipment:
Players may only have each slot filled, and not carry any extra items. Slots are as follows:

Main Hand: Can be filled with any Main, Off-Hand, or 2 Handed item
Off Hand: Can be filled with any off-hand item, as long as no 2 handed item is equipped in the main hand
Body: Can be filled with any Body item
Misc: Can have unlimited Misc. items


Phases will last 24 hours. You have 24 hours to PM your action for the day, and the Game Master write up will reflect all actions of all players, and then mention what (if any) the arena hazard for the next round is. The game will last as many phases as necessary, until only 1 person is left alive.

Sample Actions:

Be warned, as some of you guys know, I like to… overcomplicate things, so there will be new features added to the game.

48 hours before the game starts, I will PM everyone asking them for their X preferred numbers in order, where X is their sign-up number.

e.g. Vynce (?) will PM me his 1 preferred number, DukeC will send me his 2 preferred numbers (with the one he’d more prefer as his first number), … , RadicalFuzz will send me his 13 preferred numbers (from his most preferred to his least preferred) and XthAtGAm3RGuYX will send me his 21 most preferred numbers (from most to least preferred).

Anyone that doesn’t submit a preference within the 48 hours will be randomly assigned a number after I have designated the ones that requested numbers their highest available preference.

The game will start in exactly 7 days, and sign-ups are open until then.

Yeah, sign me up as a participant. When is the deadline for signups?


I’m going to kill you all. READ LAST GASPS.


I want in.

No limit to the # of players? There has to be a limit unless you have a fuckton of equipment for us to use.


Count me in


-signing up-


I’d love to play.

Ratchet and Clank was my favorite game series growing up, and an arena game in its world seems dope.


*Sign me up. *


I have no idea what this is



Never touched a Playstation for a game other than MGS, but I’m in.


Count me utterly lost and excited.

(And in)


AC-senpai, have mercy.



I’m in. Time to play my own brain child and see how it is on the other side


Somehow dies phase 1


I’d play but…

A. I have Vynce on ignore so that would be a problem.

B. Chief’s not playing.

Oh well.


Also Oz needs to join and win. Then that would make that little tutorial box with him, Chief, and I the most winningest quote box ever.




Finally, a game that will be in my own time zone. I hope everyone else hates the deadlines

Oh, and sign me up.


Sign me up fo’ tha game so I can vanquish mah foes wit pimped out justice!
